Camden in Literature


Writer Charles Dickens, a one-time resident of Camden Town, set various characters and places in his stories here too.

Bob Cratchit's family in A Christmas Carol (1843) and the Micawbers in David Copperfield (1850) are from Camden, and in Dombey and Son (1846–1848), a description of the building of the London and Birmingham Railway includes a trip through Camden Town.
